International Criminal Tribunals Drafting
This seminar seeks to engage students with the laws and practices of the international criminal tribunals through hands-on research and writing projects. Students will be responsible for drafting mock legal briefs exploring pressing international criminal law issues, including regarding the crimes, modes of responsibility and/or procedural rules before these tribunals. Through working on these projects, students will be exposed to the fundamentals of international criminal law, as well as to the research tools, drafting styles and internal functioning of the various international criminal tribunals. There is the possibility that some of the mock legal briefs may be submitted to the international criminal tribunals.
